Beautiful Mount Baker is no half-baked idea

The most magnificent thing about your Mount Baker vacation rental – aside from the mountain itself, an active volcano that was known to indigenous peoples for thousands of years – is that it will be smack dab in Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, one of the most beloved national forests in the country. Set on the west side of the Cascades just south of the Canadian border, Mount Baker is much more than a popular destination for winter sport enthusiasts. You’ll find glacier-covered peaks, elegant alpine meadows, and enough evergreens and woodland creatures to satisfy any amateur naturalist.

Take in the beautiful mountain landscape as you zoom by

The ski slopes are the place to be at Mount Baker in winter, with powdery downhills and well-groomed trails for cross-country skiers, plus plenty of spots nearby for apres-ski cocktails and dining. After the snow melts, hikers have more trails to choose from than they can count. Try starting at Artist Point, an overlook with a 360-degree view of Mount Shuksan and Mount Baker that will inspire your creative soul. Then head up the steep path to Table Mountain for more breathtaking views of the surrounding rock formations.

A rest for the ski-weary at area vineyards

The main attraction at your Mount Baker vacation rental will be the mountain itself, with nearby Mount Shuksan coming in a close second. Still, you can’t ski and hike 24/7, and the area provides options for travelers who need a break from all that beauty and all those mountain sports. Drive a little ways west or south from the park, and you’ll come upon coastal wineries offering tastings and gourmet local cheeses. Travel south to the Verlot Public Service Center to check out a newly renovated museum of local history.

Singing in the snow or frolicking through the forest

The climate in the Mount Baker area ranges from warm (temps in the 70s with clear skies in summer) to wintry (lows in the 20s in January) with snow and rain all year long. The Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest has recorded world-record snowfall, which means skiing and snowboarding are reliably awesome from January through April. If snow sports are not a requirement, you're in luck. Mount Baker vacation rentals will fit into a tighter budget in summer and fall, and you'll still get the benefit of beautiful forest hikes and mountain views.

A wildlife wonderland, from hemlock trees to hoary marmots

The Mount Baker Wilderness is an enormous wilderness area within Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, and it is home to fir, cedar, and hemlock trees. If you hike to higher elevations, you’ll see alpine meadows, large rock formations, and permanent glaciers. Keep your eye out for mountain goats and hoary marmots, and in summer, treat yourself to a vista of brightly blooming alpine flowers. The snow doesn't melt completely until May or June, so wildflowers bloom late in summer. Birdwatchers can hope to spot loons, grebes, and egrets.
